Description


r0t has reported some vulnerabilities in SocketKB, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks and disclose sensitive information.

1) Input passed to the "node" and "art_id" parameters isn't properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

2) Input passed to the "__f" parameter isn't properly verified, before it is used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources.

Successful exploitation requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.

The vulnerabilities have been reported in version 1.1.0 and prior. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised and verified.

Provided and/or discovered by:
r0t
